Hosta Gold Edger copes with full sun. It's small, but not tiny, so is good for edging borders - hence the name and would be fine in a pot if you can protect it from deep frost in winter and keep it watered in summer. They don't like deep frozen roots or thirst.
However, you may want to consider shrubs which can cope outside all year. I have successfully grown cream and green variegated euonymous in pots for years along with a variegated pieris - smart new red foliage in spring then creamy flowers - and trailing creamy variegated ivy. They stood in matching pots either side of my front door in Belgium all winter and withstood -15C. I put pansies in the gaps for winter and pelargoniums in summer for added colour.
There must be other shrubby combinations that would answer.
